A Humbling Weekend

“It was a weekend of humbling experiences. We just struggled with the ability to make overall speed, as well as the ability to make speed with the balance. This weekend was a struggle, but I'm still proud of everyone on this No.11 Chevy Accessories Chevrolet team. We get another opportunity to bounce back in the weeks ahead.” - Daniel

  • Daniel Hemric qualified 16th for the Cabo Wabo 250 at Michigan International Speedway.

  • The first caution of the day came out on lap four, and Hemric relayed to the team that his center-exit could be better. He was told to save fuel under caution before restarting 13th on lap 10. The caution came out again on lap 11, and the team elected to stay out. Hemric restarted as the fourth car on the inside lane with 14 laps to go in the opening stage. The caution came again on lap 19, and Hemric reported he needed front turn and help getting into the corner better. Hemric restarted 10th with seven laps to go in the stage. Still battling handling issues, Hemric finished the stage 12th.

  • During the stage break, Hemric came down pit road for four tires, fuel and air pressure adjustments. He restarted 17th when the green flag flew on lap 36. The caution flag came out on lap 38 and went back to green on lap 42 with Hemric sitting 13th. Hemric went on to finish the second stage 15th.

  • Hemric pitted at the stage break for four tires, fuel and adjustments. The team did a track bar and air pressure adjustment to help the balance of the car before restarting as the eighth car on the outside lane on lap 67. By lap 90, Hemric sat 15th as the green-flag pit stops began. He made his scheduled, green-flag stop on lap 98 for four tires and fuel. As the green-flag stops cycled through, Hemric moved up to 13th before the caution came out with 12 laps to go. The green flag came back out with just seven laps to go, as Hemric restarted 12th. He quickly jumped to 10th after the restart but was shuffled back to 15th where he finished the race.
